Time marches on, and yet movie theatres and performing arts venues – including the Alex Theatre – remain closed in Los Angeles County. Movie theatres in nearby counties are starting to reopen, but often with significant restrictions on seating plans and the size of the audience. This same period has seen a renaissance of drive-in theatres, which are thriving.
Our partners at Glendale Arts, the operating entity of the theatre, have been diligently working to develop plans to make patrons feel safe and protected once the appropriate governing bodies allow theatres to reopen. However, there still isn’t an estimated date of when that may occur.
As previously announced, AFS has canceled most of our remaining 2020 screenings, specifically our annual Halloween show and The Greatest Cartoons Ever! at Christmas. We now have an update regarding our most popular annual event.
23rd Annual The Three Stooges® Big Screen Event! Postponed
All summer long we’ve been hoping that progress would be made toward reopening theatres, and that this iconic event could be held on its scheduled date of Saturday, November 28. However, with the currrent uncertainty of when venues might re-open, and the extent to which patrons would be ready to return, we’ve reluctantly decided to postpone this show to a future, yet-to-be-determined date.
We are well aware of the loyal, enthusiastic fan base that this event has attracted, and how it has become an annual Thanksgiving tradition for many of you. We will do our best to bring the 23rd edition of the show, presented in association with C3 Entertainment, to its many supporters as soon as conditions allow.
